  • Description

    Deported Labour Leaders.

    Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, February 1914

    Tracking shots from another boat (bouncing on waves) of battered old-looking cargo ship the 'Umgeni' (London). Several smaller ships nearby; rowing boats alongside the Umgeni.

    Various shots of a group of about 20 men; all in dark suits; overcoats; hats - in small boats up next to a ship (the Umgeni). CUs of these men; M/S of a lot of men right next to the ship's hull; they are standing in the rowing boats looking at the side of ship - could be reporters, speaking to the men (deported Bolsheviks?) on the Umgeni? Also there are other men on the ship; looking down at these others; and a large boat also next to ship.

    One shot of 2 sailors rowing a photographer. Close shot of stern. Shot looking up at other group of men; most of them in suits; on board the Umgeni; looking down.

    Also on ON 181 E.

    Deportation; crime; departure.
